Disaster  Management  The Development Perspective: An Extract From The Tenth Fiver Year Plan

Five Year Plan documents have, historically, not included consideration of issues relating to the management and mitigation of natural disasters. Disaster management is not generally associated with plan financing.  It has been limited to the idea of “calamity relief”, which is seen essentially as a non-plan item of expenditure recently, expert bodies have dwelt on the role of the Planning Commission and the use of plan funds in the context of disaster management. Suggestions have been made in this regard by the Eleventh Finance Commission, and also the High Powered Committee on Disaster Management. This extract briefly outlines the global context and the Indian experience of disasters, sets out the institutional and financial arrangements for disaster management and the response towards these in the country.  It is suggested that the development process needs to be sensitive towards disaster prevention and mitigation aspects. There is  need to look at disasters from a development perspective as well. The message for the Tenth Plan  was  that in order to move towards safer national development, development projects should be sensitive towards disaster mitigation
